AMTA's Approach to the Affordable Care Act
Published:
08/07/2013 12:00 AM
Evanston, IL. The American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) understands there has been much discussion and debate about the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the potential role for massage therapists that it might provide within health insurance based, third-party reimbursement. Similar debates are taking place among other health care professionals as the ACA presents many challenges for everyone involved in health care, from professionals to consumers. While the law was enacted more than 3 years ago, it continues to be debated, analyzed and scrutinized. Meanwhile, the law has evolved and implementation will continue to evolve, especially as states determine their approaches to it.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage targets deep layers of connective tissue and muscle. Using slow strokes to apply pressure, the massage focuses on areas of pain and tension. Injuries or chronic muscle tension can cause adhesions, more commonly referred to as knots, to form in the tendons, ligaments and muscles. These adhesions are rigid and painful and can block circulation, impede movement and cause inflammation. Deep tissue massage breaks down the adhesions to restore natural movement and reduce pain.

Overview

The pain that stems from these conditions is most often the result of inflammation. When the muscles are massaged, blood flow throughout the body is increased. The better blood flow reduces inflammation and therefore relieves pain.

Tension and Stress Reduction

Deep tissue massages can also reduce tension and stress, leading to lower blood pressure. According to a study conducted by the University of Maryland Medical Center, guests may experience a drop in blood pressure of up to 5.3 mm Hg following a deep massage session.

Repeated massage sessions can even break up and eliminate scar tissue. The pressure associated with deep massage improves lymphatic circulation and encourages drainage, which leads to an improved range of motion and more flexibility. Due to these benefits, this type of massage is often recommended for people who have recently undergone surgery. Consult your doctor before receiving massage therapy; there may be a period of healing necessary before receiving a massage is safe or appropriate.

Muscle Injuries

Injured muscles can also benefit from deep tissue massages. During the session, the muscles are manipulated and relaxed, causing the release of toxins and the stretching of twisted or tight muscle mass. For this reason, deep massages are especially beneficial for athletes who suffer from various sports-related injuries.

Relaxation

Although deep tissue massages are not specifically designed to promote relaxation, many guests report feeling happier and rejuvenated following a session. This is because the therapy promotes the production of serotonin, a hormone that is responsible for good feelings.

Deep Tissue Technique

During the massage, the therapist uses his or her hands, elbows, fingertips, knuckles or forearms to stimulate the muscles and reduce adhesions. The slower pace of this type of massage means that every muscle receives the optimal level of care. Guests may be asked to breathe deeply throughout the session, especially when tense areas are being targeted. Deep breathing supplies the muscles with plenty of oxygen and can ease discomfort.

A professional massage therapist can create a comprehensive and unique therapy plan based on your individual needs. No two sessions are alike because they are customized to address the specific problems of each guest. The therapist can target certain muscle groups to ensure that you emerge from the table feeling refreshed and free of pain, whether you are suffering from a chronic condition, stress or a sports injury.

Session Length

All session times include 5 minutes for initial consultation and undressing and conclude with 5 minutes for redressing and recommendations. For example, 60 minute custom massage session consist of 5 minutes for initial consultation and undressing, 50 minutes custom massage and 5 minutes for redressing and recommendations.
